I have been involved in Classical Conversations for over 6 years in Virginia and have been a director in the Challenge program (7th-12th grade). This is an organization which empowers parents to home educate through high school using a classical, Christian, College prep curriculum. There are now 45 Classical Conversations communities in Virginia alone (as well as about 35 states). Please go to the website classicalconversation.com and on the event calendar check out the information meetings that are going on in various areas. I would encourage you to attend an information meeting to learn about classical education for homeschooling and giving students the tools of learning in grammar, dialectic and rhetoric stages. Home education has been a blessing to our family in the state of Virginia. We live in Chesterfield which is close to Richmond and Chesterfield has a large home school population. There are rural areas nearby and in close proximity to our capitol. I invite you to the Chesterfield area and to one of our Classical Conversations Communities.

In some parts of the state your children will be looked at differently because of home-schooling. The urban areas are your better choice. My sister home schools in Chesterfield County outside Richmond and there is a large group of students there.

You mention that you want to spend less than $800 per month to rent a place. We, too, have been looking around for inexpensive rentals, as we are moving there from out of state, and so far, the only areas that we have found seem to be in the Winchester/Stephens City/Front Royal area. They have private rentals for about $800 there. Look at the online newspapers for these cities, and you'll see what I mean. From what I can tell from researching, Winchester is a small, but nice sized city, but as for something larger, Leesburg or Chantilly.

As for homeschooling, we homeschooled our now grown daughter and dealt with all sorts of people and criticizing. Some people just don't understand how enriching it can be...spending quality time with your kids while educating them, too.

Best of luck to you!
